Seas the Day featuring Art Impressions Flip Cards

 Hello AI Fans!

Today my card features both wet and dry embossing for the "Emboss like a boss" challenge here at the Art Impressions Blog.  I don't know why I don't use these techniques more often. Dry embossing adds so much, and I love the look of wet embossing as well. I don't know if my embossing powder wasn't working correctly, or if I'm just rusty at using it, but you can see it's pretty lumpy. It was more like embossing beads than powder.  Maybe that's why it melted that way. Anyway, I love the luscious lime color I used! I used #5104 Octopus Flip Card which is on sale right now!! These flip cards are so cute and fun, don't you think? I stamped it onto cryogen white paper and colored it with Copic markers listed below.  Don't forget you need 5103 Flip Card Die to make the card! 

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and until next time - stay crafty!

Happy Birthday featuring Art Impressions Girlfriends

 Hello AI Fans!

I'm sure we can all use lots of birthday cards throughout the year! I've got another one to show you today that features the AI Girlfriends line of stamps. This set is #5281 We're Here Set!  This set could be used for so many different occasions! I just added some balloons and a Happy Birthday die cut. I stamped them onto Cryogen White paper and colored them with Copic markers which are listed below. I used a fine tip marker to write Oh Happy Day onto the door sign.

A hug in a mug featuring Art Impressions

 Hello AI Fans!

My card today fits the Midnight Snack Challenge going on right now! I used one of the many Matchbook Sets from Art Impressions #5403 MB Coffee Shop. Just look at all those yummy goodies behind the glass case! If you haven't tried the Matchbooks yet, I highly recommend them! I stamped all the images onto Cryogen White paper with Memento ink and then colored them with Copic markers listed below. Have you ever had one of those "slap yourself in the forehead moments"??  I had one of those when I was creating this card. I love using digi papers (that's what I used here), but the one thing I never liked about it was that it was one sided, the back side was white. That didn't really work with projects like this that looks better with double sided pattern paper. I have no idea why I'd never thought of this before, but it dawned on me to make my own double sided paper by just flipping it over and putting it back through my printer with a coordinating print pattern. DOH!! LOL! 

Thanks for stopping by today and until next time - stay crafty!

Happy Birthday interactive card featuring Art Impressions and the Magic Iris Die set from Lawn Fawn

 Hello AI Fans!!

How many of you love interactive cards? I raise both of my arms, and if I could raise my legs without falling on my behind, I'd raise those too! LOL!  I love dimension, and I love interactive! That's what I've got for you today! I used a magic iris die and a camera add on to create this cute and fun birthday card. I hope you love it as much as I do! For the images, I used the adorable 5400 Baby Critters Set from Art Impressions. This is the cutest birthday set! I've used it so many times, and I'm not about to stop! LOL! So here's some pictures, and I've shown you several as the shutter opens on the front of the card as the handle is pulled down on the right. 

Isn't that just too much fun??!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and until next time - stay crafty!!
